Key Updates

 

 

October 2018

The "no meal break" rule pay conditions in the Fitness Industry Award Casual has been updated to reflect the rate of casual rate x 2 plus casual loading, as specified in clause 25.1 Meal Break

August 2018

Allowance rate update for Kilometre Allowance - Car (above and below ATO limit). Further information can be found at ATO.

1 August 2018

The award has been updated to reflect changes made as part of the Fair Work Decision 4 year review of modern awards. The determination for the new clause in the modern award allowing employees to take unpaid leave to deal with family and domestic violence can be found here. Family and Domestic Violence leave applies from the first full pay period on or after 1 August 2018. Further information can be found at Fair Work.

Employees, including part-time and casual employees are entitled to 5 days unpaid family and domestic violence leave each year of their employment. The 5 days renews each 12 months of their employment but does not accumulate if the leave is not used.

A new leave category has been created - “Family and Domestic Violence Leave” and a new Work Type - “Family and Domestic Violence Leave taken”.  The Leave Allowance Templates and any impacted rule conditions have also been updated.

28 June 2018

The Award has been updated to reflect the Fair Work Commission’s national minimum wage increase of 3.5% from its Annual Wage Review 2017-18 decision. This also includes updates to expense-related allowances.

These changes come into effect from the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2018. Please install these updates AFTER you have finalised your last pay run prior to the first full pay period commencing on or after 1 July 2018.

Additionally, the following changes have been made as part of this update:

  1. The Payment Summary Classification settings for Allowance based pay categories have been updated as per STP requirements.
  2. We have created a new rule - 12.6 Apply Overtime - Over Advanced Standard Hours - Part-Time. This rule reflects the following provisions of clause 12.2:
    • the hours worked each day;
    • which days of the week the employee will work;
    • the actual starting and finishing times of each day.

    Previously we could only assess the number of hours worked per week for overtime purposes using the existing PT Overtime rule. Now, however, we can assess the Advanced Standard Work Hours as set up within the employee's Pay Run Defaults screen.

    For example, if an employee's Advanced Standard Work Hours were as follows:

    Screen_Shot_2018-05-25_at_08.22.28.png

    The rule will assess hours as follows:

    1. Any time worked on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday will be deemed overtime;
    2. Any time worked before the start times on Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Sunday will be deemed overtime; and
    3. Any time worked after the end times on Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Sunday will be deemed overtime.

    N.B:

    (a) This rule only works where Advanced Standard Work Hours have been set up using start and finish times, NOT hours only;

    (b) If no Advanced Standard Work Hours have been set up for a part time employee, then all hours will be deemed overtime.

 

March 2018

  1. Fix any auto meal break rules so that they don't apply to leave requests
  2. Updated allowance pay categories configuration.  e.g. changed payment summary classifications.
  3. Created Kilometre allowance pay categories - above and below ATO limits
